I bought Frommer's `The Algarve with your Family' after having finalised my travel plan to Algarve region of Portugal lest I may miss out something unique.

For three days during August 2009 I did carriage driving through dirt tracks of the rolling hills of Espinhaçao do Câo in the border of Lagos and Aljesur - where Mr. David Fry and his son Manny, who are accomplished horsemen, provide excellent facilities for horseback riding and carriage driving. The horses are happy and looked after well in their 50 acre property, which was formerly a hill farm. This is a family friendly facility having level headed horses that are friendly even to beginners.

We just returned from a week in Algarve and piurchased this book, hoping the "local scoop" would help us find the true jewels. Not so much. Though some of this travel book is done well, we found it to be quite overrated with the "sites"... making a simple site out to be much more than it really was. For example, the Portugese water dogs at the Rio de Formose Natural Preserve were talked up quite highly. We were quite surprised with how simple the entire "preserve" was- thre was only one water dog to look at and honestly, it wasn't that exciting or impressive... sorry folks. The sites that are listed don't have good (or any at times) directions to them, which would have been quite helpful for us.
